Ok, a little background, before any critiques! LOL

Now, keep in mind, I just started sewing clothes 2 weeks ago! And all I've done thus far is:

2 reconed tee's (for me):
#1: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=231824.msg2528315#msg2528315
#2: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=232382.msg2535002#msg2535002

And a reconed outfit for my 3 year old:

Then as I was lurking through the "real" sewing stuff, I found an adorable tute for a wrap dress by Kimberlina!
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=185607.msg1947863#msg1947863

Now, I've never made a pattern, or used one, so mine came out a little wonky, but nevertheless, I think it might work out! My daughter is at school, so can't try it on yet! Enough with the jibjab, ON WITH THE PICS!

Front:

Back:
I placed a button in the back of mine because I don't think I made it wide enough to "wrap"! LOL But it will have a cute little opening at the midback!


Comments & Questions, Very welcome! I LOVE feedback!
Thanks for looking!

way to go!
I haven't tried this tute yet but i want to...
I am sure it will work, especially in the summer when things need to be breezy! Make some little bloomers to match and...viola!

OH! Bloomers are a great idea .. then if it doesn't "wrp" all the way, it's no biggy ... now ... to figure out how to "try" to make bloomers!~ LOL
Thanks!

so ive been trying to make bloomers and i really cant make them without them looking funky, i hope you have better luck, so i just started making little capri/shorts with a ruffle to wear underneath, i think it looks cute! Anyway, just passing that along in case you have trouble with bloomers like me! Smiley

Oh! that's a GREAT idea too! My 3 year old doesn't really like bloomers (she doesn't need a diaper!" she says!) but the capris would work great & I could probably figure those out easier! Thanks!

great first project! i sew a lot of smocks for clients and the thing i have found really makes for a professional finish and easier washing is to go back and put a finishing edge stitch all the way around the edge about 1/8" in. it really finishes it off and binds the sides together. just make sure to iron first.  an easy step that makes a big difference. just a tip...
